Covering letters for job applications
November 18, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Many job applications ask for a covering letter to accompany a CV and often this creates confusion between what to include in your CV and what to put in your covering letter. As cover letters determine that first impression you give an employer, it’s important to know how to approach them.
Come along to this session and you will learn:
– What a good quality cover letter looks like;
– A recommended structure to guide you with the content of your cover letter;
– Why to avoid generic cover letters and how to tailor each letter to the job you are applying for.
